This musical is a combination of four favorite fairy tales; “Cinderella,” “Jack and the Bean Stalk,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Rapunzel.”
The musical is tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family.
The story is an interaction with a witch and her curse upon them.
A childless baker and his wife cannot have a child until they follow the bidding of the witch next door to get a cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn and the slipper as pure as gold.
It’s a good thing, then that they’ve got neighbors named Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Cinderella to help them before (and after) Happily Ever After.
RAT is excited to begin preparing for this production.
